With The Last of Us Part II finally preparing for release next month, PlayStation has dropped a new trailer to give us some sense of where Ellie’s new journey will take her.
Set in a post-pandemic world where a virus turned the infected into flesh-eating monster, the first game took players on a journey as a man named Joel attempted to transport Ellie, a girl who is seemingly immune to the effects of the virus, to a safe haven.
The second game picks up five years later. Joel and Ellie have settled in Wyoming and are working to rebuild their lives. Naturally, this peace can’t last and their community is soon attacked by outsiders. Players will join Ellie as she sets out for revenge.
According to Entertainment Weekly, game developer Naughty Dog has been fighting leaks since the release date announcement and they have made statements asking gamers to avoid spoilers at all costs.
“No matter what you see and hear,” they said in the statement, “the final experience will be worth it.”
The game has experienced multiple delays, the last of which came as a result of shutdowns due to the coronavirus. The Last of Us Part II will be available on June 19, 2020. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments!
